About 94 pe cent are simple sprains whic recover in two or three week with little or no treatment. Q T suffered a whiplasl injury in an auto accident a year ago. What are mj chances for a complete re covery? A In those victims whose symptoms (weakness, pain and limitation of motion in the neck) do not subside promptlj with cold and hot compresses rest and hydroeortisone, thorough study should be made to determine the exact nature of the injury. Some persons who have hac dizziness, headache and other symptoms persisting for 20 to 215 years after a whiplash in- jury have been cured by the combined efforls of an ortho- pedist and a neurosurgeon. Persons who have not had a whiplash injury and don't want to get one should equip their car with head supports. Re- lector tape on the rear bump- also helps to prevent rear- end collisions at night. Watch the car in back of you in your rearyiew mirror. If Us driver persists in following you too closely, let him pass. This will bolster his ego and may pre- vent a nasty accident. Q What could cause big white blotches on my wrists? They will not tan like the rest of my skin. Is there anything I can take for this? A The cause of this con- dition, vitiligo, in most cases is unknown. In some persons it occurs on the hands and wrists as a result of using an anti- septic cleansing agent that contains parateritary butyl- phenol or other phenol com- pounds. Trioxsalen or methypsoralen, both prescription drugs, when taken by mouth help some per- sons but should be used only under medical supervision. Small spots may be treated by tattooing with gold salts. A simple alternative is the use of masking cosmetics.

Drug May Be Killer New Spectacles Invented OTTAWA (CP) Do your glasses slip down on your nose when you sweat? Do you have to remove your glasses when swimming under water or sky-diving?

Wilbur Elliott Cowie of Ot- tawa, an engineer with the defence research board, has invented, after II years of trying and 18 models, specta- cle frames difficult to pull off your face. "It took nearly 40 years to develop the said Mr. Cowie, director of environ- Mecliciue Hat Student Tours Metis Areas EDMONTON (CP) A -15- foot trailer and two university students, Jim Nohol of Flat- bush, Alta., and Garry King of Medicine Hat, are touring Metis colonies in northern Al- berta to demonstrate and or- ganize participation in fastball, field hockey, track and field, volleyball, basketball, soccer, badminton and horseshoe pitch- ing.

HUG SIDE OF HEAD The frames are hinged on top instead of on the top out- side corner as with everyday glasses. The bows conse- quently hug the side of the head. On the end of the bows are two plastic half-mcons which encircle the ear. "You get fitted for my glasses just the same as for any Mr. Cowie said. "The human head is wider just back of the ears than at the corners of the eyes. I wanted to eliminate all that extra frame on ordinary glasses which bump into tln'ngs, like doors. "These frames are shaped to suit the human face. You can sleep with them on." They have been extensively tested by armed forces per- sonnel and can be worn under a gas mask. EDMONTON (CP) Trust, youth-operated drug-rescue association, is circulating a let- ter, addressed simply to "peo- warning young people that a recent shipment of capsules of MDA into Edmon ton is believed so potent it can kill. Rod West, director of Trust ilames the drug for one death and a number of bad trips. MDA was originally develop- ed as a diet pill, but abandonee 3ecause of possible side-effects, pharmacologist at the Uni- versity of Alberta said. Mr.' West said that nobody mows much about even pure HDA, so the street level stuff s entirely unknown. 'We've no idea what's in the stuff. The base could be mor- >hine, strychnine or almost anything else." 'OUND DEAD Mr. West said a 24-year-old man, found dead in a parked car, is believed to have been tilled by the drug. "I'm dying and it's beautiful. Why don't you join are reported to have been the last words of the dying man. The letter explains the sus- pected cause of the man's death.

"Another two almost took his trip the same lonely night, but they got lucky and made it to the hospital in time." The letter concludes "it's not a turn-on, it's a turn-off."
